A Very Quick/ Last Minute Card!!!


A quick post to show a card I made this Friday, it was unplanned as I was only asked by a work colleague at 7pm to make it, when was it needed Saturday morning yes you read that right, not even 24hours notice!!, Why do non card-makers think it takes two minutes to make a card., I'm sure they don't realise the thought and effort that we put in!! Anyway I made it for the following reason, my friends grandad is very poorly and the card was for her grandma's 80th birthday. Well i started the card at midnight, I don't know where the time went that night and was in bed by 1:25am all done,think it was the fastest card I've made.

Thankfully my friend loved the card which is a very good job as I was up for work at 6am and very tired.

My friend had sent a photo to me that she wanted on the card, added bonus no image to colour, so here is the card

Apologies for the poor photo, I had forgot to take one so it was done at work where there isn't a great deal of light.

Papers- First edition
Flowers- Xcut Punches

I'm really please with how the card turned out. I hope you like the card, any comments always appreciated.

First of all I need to apologise, I set a post to publish on the 1st of march, it hasn't happened and i don't know where it is, so here is a new one, I've had no Internet since then as the router packed in, so this might have something to do with it as it was playing up a couple of days before hand,

Anyway the post was my first DT card for DESMET DESIGNS the challenge runs until the 31st March 2012 so there is still plenty of time to join in, I really hope you do, the theme this month is ANYTHING GOES!!!! so what are you waiting for, make a card and enter, the prize is a £5 voucher to spend at
